+1. Prayers for your speedy recovery on the way. Too late for this year, but expect to see you running in the Boston Marathon next year.

Let the games begin!!!!!
Thinking of you, Katie! May your surgery go well, and may all your knee problems be resolved!

Carol, why should age be the only determination for driver retesting? Like taxy said, by age we tend to have fewer accidents. At least most old-person accidents are at low speed! Unlike those 20-somethings that speed, drink, and have more serious accidents. I have no problem with scheduled retesting in order to continue to enjoy the privilege of driving. Maybe road tests every ten years until you hit 70, then road tests every five years after that? I also think retesting should be mandatory if you have so many moving violations in a specific amount of time. You get more than one speeding ticket in a year? Retest! Two at-fault accidents in a year? Retest! Sometimes it takes a LOT for a concept to stick.

****

I''m listening to the Indians post-game show while the dishwasher finishes up. Then I'll kick back for the rest of the night and enjoy a cup of tea (I'll pay for it about 5:00AM when I have to "take a walk"...) with one of the biscotti I bought when I grocery shopped today.

I'm having a case of spring fever. Been so busy cleaning, going through closets, putting away winter clothing in the guest room closet, changing out the winter bedspreads for the summer ones, deadheading my 'mums, just generally gettin' stuff done.

Wish I could catch that fever, Cheryl! My house could use a good cleaning!

The latest school incident just happened about 10 miles from here. Instead of a shooting, it was a stabbing. 20 some injured, 6 seriously, but no fatalities, Thank God!
